I don't think Aoshima has a Ferrari license. But they'll probably do another Lambo. I still bet with Tamiya releasing a 918.


Hope so. That's what I'm keen on.

Holy Christ my head is huge the way this forum displays that video link.  I had been meaning to post about the new video series I'm doing in the appropriate section, so thanks to Jonathan for the unsolicited plug.
 
Aoshima has a new super car coming out in the 1Q of 2015...and that's all I can tell you about it.  But there, THAT's some legit 2015 news.
 
The above referenced kits for the All Japan Toy & Hobby Show have tentative 4Q 2014 releases (Oct-Dec).


For Aoshima, I'm thinking LaFerrari, McLaren P1 or Porsche 918........

Some of those AMT trucks (if not all) in that year's Matchbox catalogue illustrated above were built by Ted Taylor, who worked with Matchbox at the time. He also wrote for UK based model magazines (Scale Models, and later Scale Aircraft Modelling, amongst others). Quite a talented modeller, just as famous for his 1/48 Phantoms as his 1/25 trucks. His website has some of the old photos, including GMC General, Autocar and Super Boss.

Unfortunately Ted passed away last year.

Very nice. The real ones are collectors items in Australia now.
